CANCELLED: Rewriting the Ancient World in Renaissance and Contemporary Poetry

Fri. Mar. 22 04:00 PM - Fri. Mar. 22 05:00 PM

Annick MacAskill (St. Mary's University)

Room 3D01

Co-sponsored by the Department of Modern Languages and Literatures

This talk begins by examining Anne de Marquets, a sixteenth-century poet and translator and Dominican nun implicated in the French Religious Wars, and the presence of the classical tradition in her work. From the limits of women’s education in the sixteenth century, the talk then turns to the author’s own interests in the classical tradition and its presence in her own collections of poetry.
